Hard to believe that 2014 is over. We saw plenty of music have the clubs going crazy this year in hip hop & R&B, and we narrowed the list to the 14 best hip hop songs of 2014.
14. Beyonce – 7/11
How can you have a countdown of the biggest songs in the club of any year and not include a Beyonce track?
13. Childish Gambino – 3005
Yeah, I know, technically this song came out in late 2013, but….
12. Fabolous – Cuffin Season Remix
50 Cent and G-Unit back together on stage in New York was one of the biggest moments in Hip Hop this year, and they capped off their performance debuting this heat.
11. Jeremih – Don’t Tell Em
The original was cool, but it was the remix with YG and Rick Ross that got the most love in the clubs of this Jeremih hit this year.
10. T.I – About The Money
TIP and Young Thug delivered one of the summer’s biggest songs with “About The Money”. The clubs loved the original, but the remix gets just as much love right now.
9. Drake – 0 to 100
Drake dropped 0 to 100 over All Star Weekend, and this song quickly became a favorite of crowds and DJ’s alike.
8. YG – Who Do You Love
YG brought Drake in on the remix, and kept this crowd mover among the most requested for much of the year.
7. OG Maco – U Guessed It
This is one of those songs that, when it comes on, and you hear “Bitch U Guessed It” screaming through the speaker, you can’t help but get a little more turnt up.
6. O.T Genasis – CoCo
Six months ago, you probably had never heard of O.T Genasis. Now, he has one of the top club anthems to drop in the past year. Is he the next Jeezy, or simply another Trinidad James? We will see in 2015.
5. Big Sean – IDFWU
Big Sean’s unique delivery made IDFWU a must on DJ’s playlists no matter where you went from the moment it dropped.
4. Dej Loaf – Try Me
The Detroit born rapper has been on the national scene since 2011, but it wasn’t until Try Me started moving crowds that everyone took notice. Big things are in store for Dej, who recently connected with Rich Gang for a collabo
3.Rae Sremmurd – No Flex Zone Remix
The original was a novelty, but the remix breathed new life to Rae’s hit. Throw Nicki and Pusha T’s lyrics on the addictive beat, and you will be dancing to this during a day party in late February, watch.
2. Hot N*gga – Bobby Shmurda
How can you argue that Bobby’s hit wasn’t the top hip hop track of the year? He had clubs all around the country shimmying. Of course, Bobby won’t likely be free anytime soon to bring that energy to Charlotte, due to his December arrest for gang related shootings and drug trafficking.
1. Chris Brown – Loyal
The number one song in 2014 was heard as much on your radio at 1pm as it was on Saturday at 1am. Chris Breezy, Lil Wayne, and Tyga laid the blueprint for the R&B/Hip Hop collaboration this year.
